Terms & Conditions

ELIGIBILITY:
EuroPass customers are eligible for a new tax free Citroën with temporary number plates for a minimum period of 21 days and a maximum of 175 days, if they are: Tourists, visitors and EU citizens who have resided outside the EU for more than 6 months and are not in receipt of income from EU revenue producing activities and plan to return to their residence outside the EU at the end of their stay. Full time students attending Colleges and Universities in France can lease a vehicle from 90 days to a maximum of 355 non-renewable days.

Maximum Period is 90 days if collection and return is in Portugal, plus Portuguese customs state that you cannot spend more than 90 days in a tax-free car in Portugal.


  
AGE:
The minimum driver age is 18 years (no maximum driver age) and you must hold a valid driving licence recognised in the EU. If you hold a full Australian drivers licence, an International Drivers Permit (in conjunction with your Australian licence) is highly recommended (compulsory in some countries).

WHO CAN DRIVE THE VEHICLE:
The contract holder (whose name features on the vehicle registration certificate), his/her direct descendants and heirs of the contract holder subject to the same temporary transit conditions as the contract holder. No other person may use the vehicle, for whatever reason. The vehicle may not be used for the performance of income earning activities or for professional purposes.

All additional drivers must meet all of the same qualifications and conditions as the contract holder has done to qualify for temporary registration of the Citroën vehicle to be able to drive the Citroën vehicle. “Spouse” (in the broadest sense, including cohabiting partners or civil partners subject to presentation of evidence of this union) *See below for required evidence.

ADDITIONAL DRIVERS:
may only drive the vehicle locally and cannot drive across country borders without the main driver. Other drivers (not descendants or ascendants) can only drive the car if the driver is inside the vehicle and unable to drive due to emergencies or exceptional circumstances. An international driving license must be held by persons who live outside the European Union.

The international driving license must be accompanied by the national driving license at all times. A name can’t be added to or changed on the temporary vehicle registration certificate or the international vehicle insurance card once it has been issued. *A “Spouse” partner must provide a certificate of cohabitation or official document having both partners names on the official document.

For all vehicles delivered in France the required reflective jacket and breakdown triangle is provided by Citroën .

BREATH ANALYSER REQUIRED:
The French government announced that the implementation of the sanction for drivers not carrying a breathalyser – a fine of €11 – has been postponed indefinitely. So theoretically you are still required to carry a self-test breathalyser when driving in France but there is no current legislation demanding a fine for non-compliance. The original official announcement stated that one unused, certified breathalyser must be produced showing the French certification mark NF. Carrying two single-use breathalysers will ensure that if one is used or damaged, you will still have a spare to produce. The breathalyser produced has to be in date – single-use breathalysers normally have a validity of twelve months. This is NOT law as yet.

FINAL PAYMENT:
$500 Deposit is required at time of reservation / Final balance is due 7 days after confirmation.
